Welcome to Frithwood Surgery
Welcome to our surgery website where we hope you will quickly benefit from a user friendly layout and a wealth of information about our healthcare services. We serve a rural community and are based in the new development of Bussage. Our Surgery has recently been extended to cater for the growing needs of our community and local villages within a five mile radius; Chalford, Eastcombe, Brownshill, France Lynch and Bisley. Our new waiting room is light, airy and welcoming with a new reception area and an optional 'self-check in' system. Variable height seating is available along with a book swap shelf and a child's play area.
Our helpful staff are on hand to provide a personal, friendly and discrete service to meet your needs and the Dispensary is available for patients who qualify. Find out when we’re open and what to do when we’re not, all from the comfort of your own home.

Convenience doesn’t stop there and you can now access a number of services online. Ordering a repeat prescription, managing appointments, changing contact details or sending us your comments are all just a click away.

Our team are dedicated to your continued good health and approach your care with professionalism, discretion and friendliness. You can count on a warm welcome from everyone involved here at the practice.
Friends and Family Test
From the 1st December 2014 GPs have a contractual obligation to offer the Friends and Family Test (FFT). It is a short survey to help us assess how our patients rate the service we provide. The FFT provides an opportunity to highlight both good and poor patient experience. This kind of feed back is important because its helps us improve the service to our patients.
Please take a few minutes to complete the survey about your General Practice and your most recent visit to the Surgery either online by clicking on the link on the right of this page under 'Have your say' or the link below or by completing a response card when you are next in the Surgery, these can be found in the waiting room.
Named Accountable GP
From the 1st April 2015 practices are required, under the GMS contract, to allocate a named accountable GP to all patients, including children. This named accountable GP is responsible for the patient's overall care at the Practice.
At Frithwood Surgery the GPs work closely together so this change will not affect your ability to make an appointment or speak with any of the GPs in the practice.
Your named GP has been allocated to you by the Practice, if you have a repeat prescription the name of your accountable GP will be printed on the bottom of the right hand page of the prescription. If you do not have a repeat prescription and wish to know who your accountable GP is please ask at your next appointment. If you request an emergency appointment it will be with any of the doctors who have an available appointment. New patients registering with the practice will be allocated a GP within 21 days of registration.
If you were registered with Frithwood Surgery before 1st April 2015 and were aged over 75 or took part in the Unplanned Emergency Admissions service provision you will already have been allocated a named accountable GP and this will not change.
If you would like to discuss this further please do not hesitate to contact the Surgery and speak to the Practice Manager, Ruth Henney
